Urban Decay Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

I’ll admit that I’ve never had much luck with Urban Decay Products. I haven’t tried a ton of things by them, but I have tried usually didn’t workout for me. At least aside from their lipsticks and eyeliners. Needless to say, when I started seeing pictures of this palette, I wasn’t too interested. However, once I started hearing some of blogger buddies rave about it, I had to try it for myself. I am very happy that I did.

Urban Decay Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette

In my experience, this is the best product Urban Decay has ever released. The shadows are just so good. Each one has an amazing, creamy texture and they have excellent color payoff. Even Hell Ride is good. Matte berry shades are usually patchy and don’t blend well. It isn’t quite as easy to work with as the other shades in the palette, but it is definitley the best matte berry shade I have ever used. So a huge thank you to Urban Decay for creating Hell Ride. Each shade applies and blends like a dream. You don’t have spend forever blending these to achieve an amazing eye look. They don’t require a ton of layering, either. And they last all day without creasing or fading. I haven’t experienced much fall out with this palette, either.

For $49, you get 21 shades in a variety of shades and finishes. Each shadow is 0.02 oz. You can find this palette anywhere Urban Decay is sold. I was able to get mine for 15% off at Macys, so I would wait for a sale. If you haven’t tried this palette yet, I recommend doing so. It is a great one, and keep an eye out for looks using it on my Instagram. I have a few looks in mind that I want to do soon.

      I read through some of the negative reviews after I posted this and I was shocked because I haven’t had any of the issues they mentioned. I have a few blogger friends that really love the palette, too. The color story is so amazing. It is such a versatile palette.

    I’ve seen this palette floating around everywhere and honestly never saw the appeal. But you really did it justice. Those swatches are amazing! I might have to add it to my wishlist. Not that I need another palette lol.

      That is how I was at first. Lol. I decided I had to try it out for myself and see what the hype was. Luckily, it is a great palette.
